Need a Toolkit API to find assembly hierarchy for Flexible varied Item

Need a Toolkit API to find assembly hierarchy for Flexible varied Item

Helpful scenario:

Assembly (A1) contains two occurrances of a part (P1).

Occurrence 1 of P1 height is flexed from 10 mm to 5 mm.

Occurrance 2 of P1 height is flexed from 10 mm to 7 mm.

Assembly (A1) is then used in assembly (AA1).

Assembly (A1) is made flexible in assembly (AA1) and then actual flexibility is applied only to Occurrence 2 of P1, where the width is changed from 20 mm to 15mm.

While traversing and interrogating the assembly (AA1), with existing API, we can determine that both occurrences of P1 are flexed but can not determine from where the flex is applied.

Requirement:

Need an API with which we can ask complete assembly path for a given varied Item of flexibility.

  Example : When inquired about height varied item of Occurrence 1 of P1, it should tell us assembly path  A1->P1

                   When inquired about height varied item of Occurrence 2 of P1, it should tell us assembly path A1->P1

                  When inquired about width varied item of Occurrence 2 of P1, it should tell us assembly path AA1->A1->P1

Business Case:

When a component is deformed in an assembly, we need to identify at exactly which assembly level, the deformation is applied.

Before submitting this idea, I created a case (#12351042) and did initial analysis with support representative and decided to create this Product Idea,
